What a season! After an exciting 10 week football season, we have a new CMAC Champion, who will also represent the CMAC in the OHSAA Playoffs! 

Congratulations to Taft High School! 

After beating rival, Aiken High School on Friday night by a score of 28-8, Taft clinched the CMAC Championship, going undefeated in conference play at 7-0. As the seniors for the Senators celebrated an extraordinary high school career, they knew they'd have at least one more week to defend their home in Stargel Stadium.

On Saturday, November 3rd, the Taft High School Senators will play host to the London High School Red Raiders at Stargel Stadium at 7:00 pm in the first round of post-season action!

London is coming off of their first loss of the season and will be in unfamiliar territory on Saturday as they'll come to Taft for the first time since the CMAC was formed.

Taft, however, is getting used to playing in the post-season, as this will be their fourth straight playoff appearance. While Taft has not been able to get past the Regional Quarter-Finals, this year feels special while in current Stargel Stadium's final days.

Make sure you come out to support CPS Athletics, the CMAC and the Taft Senators as they look to send Stargel Stadium out in style and make a deep run!

Game Day - Saturday, November 3

Game Time - 7:00 pm

Location - Stargel Stadium

Can you believe we've already hit week ten for Ohio High School Football?! The CMAC has a variety of headlines on the way into the conclusion of the regular season...

Aiken - Coming off a convincing win on senior night against Hughes, the Falcons will look to secure a share of the CMAC title as well as a playoff berth with a win against Taft. Aiken is one of a small group of teams that control their own destiny in regards to playoff alignment. We'll see if they can SWOOP in and steal a spot as well as win the CMAC Championship in the final regular season game to be played at current Stargel Stadium.

Taft - The Senators were tested early at Woodward this past week but broke away in the final frame, securing at least a share of the CMAC title in addition to clinching the Region 16 playoffs. Taft is now competing for a home playoff game as they'll honor their seniors in the final regular season game at Stargel. It's also worth noting that the current senior class hasn't lost a CMAC football game since they reached 7th grade! Expect a packed house and close game with a tough Aiken team.

Western Hills - The Mustangs will face Little Miami in their 2018 finale, coming off a strong showing in a 32-0 shut out against Shroder. West High officially cliched their first winning season since 2013 and will look to complete a miraculous season with a road victory. Something to look out for - if Aiken can beat Taft on Friday, we will see a 3-way tie for the CMAC title in Aiken, Taft and Western Hills.

On Monday, October 15, the Cincinnati Metro Athletic Conference held it's very first ever Cross Country Championship Meet at Withrow High School!

The 2-mile course featured turns and barriers scattered across the Withrow High School campus and allowed runners to be seen from virtually every point. The crowd on hand cheered and encouraged each runner from six different CMAC schools that participated as the girls raced first, followed by the boys. At the end of the day, we saw nearly 30 female runners and 40 male runners cross the finish line!

Taft High School took home the gold in the girls division, with four runners finishing in the top six overall! Aiken finished in second place and had the first place finisher in Brianna Triblett, SR, who is the very first CMAC Runner of the Year for Cross Country!  Brianna crossed the finish line with a time of 15:21.

On the boys side, the Aiken Falcons had a strong showing, finishing with three of the top four runners earning them the team championship! The Taft Senators also came ready to run, finishing in second place with the top overall runner. Trenis Brown, SR had the top overall time on the day, setting the official CMAC record with a time of 11:50!

The CMAC is extremely proud of each school that participated and the students that worked hard all season long. For more news and stories on the CMAC, make sure you follow the CMAC on Twitter!
